NASHVILLE, Tennessee (WTVF) – Entertainment District and Concert Hall are coming to Nashville Yards!
Nashville Yards is a highly anticipated project for many reasons. On the one hand, it is expected to create over 14,000 jobs in our city and billions of dollars in our economy every year.
And now the project gives us another reason for people to call us the city of music.
“Nashville has an incredible history with the Ryman and the Opry, and other places that are incredible, so this is a new complementary piece to what’s already established,” said Rick Mueller, North President. American from AEG Presents.
Nashville Yards is partnering with AEG to bring the concert hall into the 18-acre mixed-use development in the downtown core. The concert hall will accommodate up to 4,000 people.
“We want to give the fans another place to really enjoy the live music and for the bands to spread their wings a little wider and do some great shows and when we can do that in a state-of-the-art venue where the bands can do whatever shows they want with special production and shows, that’s really exciting, ”Mueller said.
The entertainment district will also include an eight-screen movie theater, restaurants, shops, 275,000 square feet of office space and three residential towers.
The development will also house Amazon’s new Operations Center of Excellence.
The pandemic has slowed construction, but we’re told it is expected to restart early next year with the goal of completing it by 2024.
Nashville Yards already completed construction of the Grand Hyatt Hotel last fall.
